I love this cot! Made by the Amish. We will be visiting my sister in Lancaster County, Pennyslavia very soon and she lives amongst the large Amish community there! I can’t wait.

This cot has plenty of RED and soft. What about the generously sized storage beneath? Perfect for nappies, wipes, bulky toys and cot manchester.

Now, we all know that the Amish and Shakers make exquisite furniture and home furnishings, using age-old techniques (no electric tools). I.e. will be of high quality. I’ve heard alot about the Amish quilts and cannot wait to see some examples.

The Woman behind the Blog

Welcome to my blog! It’s such a pleasure having you here.

What are you inspired by? I am inspired by beautiful and bright interiors, fabric, furniture, pinks, yellows, greens, chairs, china, trees, chocolate, peonies, hydrangeas, cherry blossoms, roses and rhubarb with cream.

Friends and family call me drey (pronounced 'dree'... short for Audrey) and I can often be found zipping through op-shops and vintage stores in the Blue Mountains, NSW, Australia.
